Code Savvy is a not-for-profit organization inspiring kids and teens to become code-savvy, that is, to understand the kind of creative thinking that goes into coding, and to try out programming computers and devices. Code Savvy is determined to bring more diversity -- gender and ethnic diversity -- to computer science.
